Opportunities for osteopathic students

We offer fourth-year medical students a wide variety of rotation opportunities. Whether this is in the form of an audition, sub-internship or elective, we invite students to rotate in our area and learn more about our organization and the communities that we serve.

We are strongly committed to teaching the next generation of physicians and it is our hope that this will lead to better quality health care for the state of Oregon. Please read more about the rotation opportunities that we offer.

We have the capacity to offer an assortment of primary care and specialty electives. Please recognize that the availability of elective rotations within the areas of our residency training programs will be limited. Many of these rotations will be reserved for current residents and students wishing to participate in an audition or sub-internship rotation.

If you are interested in requesting an elective rotation with Samaritan please continue to the application process.

Audition and Sub-Internship Opportunities
We understand that a student's choice for residency is a significant decision. We also recognize that it is imperative that the student be a good fit for the residency program. For these reasons we allow fourth-year students to complete audition and sub-internship rotations within the areas of our residency.

These experiences will allow students to see first hand the foundation and fundamental values on which our programs are built. Our goal is to provide students with a positive clinical experience and to learn more about the residency programs with Samaritan. We invite you to learn more about our osteopathic residency programs.

If you are interested in requesting an audition or sub-internship rotation, please follow the steps listed below.
